I always figured poor William didn't really mean it, but was just heartbroken.

Heard a rollickin' Peggy-O the other night! It's been making me want to dig out the old Peggy-O's ...

ah - it's online now!

check it out, tell me Peggy-O isn't gorgeous!! Phil's voice is spine tingling. God, I love it.

Phil is pretty evil sounding, threatening to burn all the cities.

I can see I'm gonna click on this repeatedly.

Another thing the "early era only" crowd misses, is that somewhere in the post-Jerry era, Phil learned to sing. Beautifully.

Respectfully disagree
I love Phil but he does not sing beautifully and not here either

Check out the Virginia tech Peggy o
This is the real goods

I hear ya and thanks for the rec, think I'll put that on ...

I still think the people dissing Furthur don't actually click the links and check it out ...

LOL - I have to respectfully point out that unfortunately in this version, Jerry threatens that if Peggy-O won't have him, he'll burn all their ... guineas.

After seeing and hearing Bob "sing" Mission in the Rain at the Monterey Fairgrounds, I feel comfortable in not wanting to see more shows. Two close friends of mine just saw a Terrapin Crossroad show and said it was great, but I just don't care. I certainly don't begrudge anyone from seeing them and believe they should continue to play and it's very cool you got to see another generation appreciating the same, but with limited time and resources, my focuses are elsewhere (like WILCO at the Greek in September). That said, I will go see them when they play Cliff's backyard.

Bob's singing is a weak link in Furthur. He has his moments, but he is certainly far weaker vocally than ever before. But Bob's singing is just one small component of the band. And paradoxically Phil's singing has greatly improved. No one's ever going to claim he has a good voice, but his singing has indeed improved, and I'm overjoyed to hear Phil sing. Bob, I admit, not so much.

But (and I'm not really aiming this at you in particular since you don't care, but maybe others), to me, Bob always overreached sometimes vocally - this isn't new. When he was younger and his voice was much stronger, he got away with it. But there were always quite a few songs he should not really have been singing 'cus he just didn't sound great, but apparently nobody wanted to tell him. Paint My Masterpiece, Desolation Row - obviously he loves these songs, but he doesn't sing them very well. Sorry Bob - I love other things Bob does for sure and there are other songs he sings beautifully. I'm not sure what the difference is, but as soon as I heard Dear Prudence I cringed, I know he wants to sing Dear Prudence and it doesn't work ...

Ha, well, some day there's gonna be a great party in Cliff's backyard, I guess.
